    Description

    The words of Ewart Alan Mackintosh are inscribed on one of Scotland's most prominent war memorials but his name is largely unknown.

    Aberdeen University lecturer Neil McLennan wants to put that right.

    Mr McLennan, who has a personal connection to the Scottish poet, is a leading scholar of one of the most celebrated poets of World War One, Wilfred Owen - who wrote his most famous works while being treated for shellshock in Edinburgh.
